Jacquelyn’s yoga classes are fun and relaxed, as well as being informative and providing an excellent instruction in yoga techniques.
As a teacher, she explains the practice of yoga clearly and integrates this very well with the sciences of physiology and anatomy.
It doesn’t matter what previous experience you have or how fit or flexible you are, her teaching practices allow anybody to take part.
The yoga classes were one of the highlights of my week and I always felt invigorated afterwards. I am just sorry that my work commitments have forced me to stop attending her lessons for now, but hopefully not for too long.
I've been having yoga lessons with Jacquelyn for over 2 years, in that time through Jacquelyn's caring & knowledgeable teaching I have gained enormous benefit both emotionally & physically.
I have found Jacquelyn’s yoga lessons very enjoyable, and what could have been a daunting experience (having one-to-one teaching) has been made a pleasure by her friendly, relaxed and encouraging approach to teaching. I have benefited from both the yoga and the relaxation taught to me, and although in my everyday life I am very pressed for time, Jacquelyn has helped me to see the benefit of making a bit of 'me' time on occasion and understanding the benefits that flow from that. Thank you.
A complete novice, I have signed up for a term of classes with Halcyon Yoga, instructed by Jacquelyn Cooper. Now a few weeks in, I am delighted to have made this decision! The class embraces students with a wide range of yoga experience and knowledge, and the atmosphere at each lesson is focussed, friendly and respectful. Every session is based on a particular theme, and includes an element of discussion as well as the physical practice, an approach I find that enriches the overall experience of the class, without overwhelming it. After a class, I feel more supple - in body and mind!
Jacquelyn is a considerate and conscientious teacher, always careful to ensure that each student is comfortable with what they're doing whilst encouraging them to exceed their expectations. She offers just the right amount of support and advice to develop each individual's practice and welcomes curiosity, discussion and feedback. Her self-awareness and sense of humour foster a sense of ease within the class, striking a perfect balance between the yoga practice, self-development and having fun.
